The Official 'eat crow' Thread.

Not sure if this is acceptable on this part of the forum, so apologies if this needs to be moved or deleted.

Not sure If I ever mentioned on this board specifically who I wanted to win the fight, but I clearly wanted Sonnen to win. I knew deep down Silva was/is the greatest MMA fighter on the planet, yet I just really pegged Sonnen as having the tools to dethrone him.

Long story short. I eat my words willingly. I had a blast watching this fight, and as a guy who's always bet on Silva for every single fight, I absolutely see now I was foolish to believe otherwise.

Thanks to Dana White and all the fans that made MMA the greatest sport in history!


On a side note, did anybody else think he was going to retire after this fight? Between the bowing prior to the match, his family coming in the octagon after his win, I was sure he'd publicly retire right then.

I don't see why fans should have to eat crow or apologize for supporting their favourite fighter(s). I wanted Chael to win. And I've rooted for him for years in his 'feud' with the champion. That doesn't mean I ever took anything away from Anderson. I've often admitted that it's increasingly difficult to bet against Silva. But that doesn't mean I should feel badly for rooting on anyone who steps into the cage with him.

A Sonnen fan can remain a Sonnen fan and justified in backing him without having to eat crow. It's as simple as 'Congratulations to Anderson Silva. He fought a hell of a fight'. Anyone that would rub the defeat in your face or demand you eat crow is an arse, and nothing more. Though admittedly, there are a few of them here.

There are a lot of people who can do just that. But then there are the fans that call others stupid for thinking other than they do or think others are delusional for thinking the fight would go differently than the first time.

They would definitely need to eat crow because they look bad after pretty much calling anyone who picked Silva an idiot.

mikepic has a little shameless behaviour in the past
I'll eat crow. I haven't been very active on these forums but I do read quite often. That said, I've questioned Silva's position as pvp best in the world vocally to friends and after last night I can honestly say I was wrong.

It takes a true champion to weather a storm (first and 2nd fight) to come back and win. My hat is off to Silva. I'd still love to see him lose but I question if there is anyone out there that could do it anymore. Well, at least with him in his prime I don't see that happening.

Keep your head high Sonnen. You were bested by the pinnacle of talent -- there's no shame in that.

I guess I'll eat crow, I bet for Sonnen and thought Sonnen would win all 5 rounds the way he won 1. I didn't trash talk much at all so I guess there aren't a bunch of posts for me to apologize for.

There is no need to eat crow, you guys are fans, if everybody liked the same thing/ shared the same opinion these forums will be boring. One would have been a fool to ignore the first fight, facts were Chael had the tools to beat Silva, and styles do make fights. Its a fight one guy is gonna lose regardless, even though Chael lost he's the only man to make Anderson Silva look human in the UFC.

Insignificance? You mean the fact that he can beat everyone in the MW division not named Anderson Silva has no meaning? Man someone should tell Lyoto that he is insignificant and should leave LHW.

I'll never eat crow because I didn't want Sonnen to win so much as I desperately just wanted Silva to lose.

Silva fans are the least classy winners I've ever come across, probably the most disappointed and annoyed I've ever been with the sport. I've been cheering for someone to beat him way back when he fought Hendo, really really just can not stand Anderson Silva and will never apologize or "eat crow" for it. He's a selfish little child in my eyes, the way he shoved Sonnen after the first round or shoulder checked him, classless. Sure Sonnen is equally guilty, but I never liked Sonnen anyways. The pure self-righteousness of the fans on this board says enough.

I'll forever love JDS, GSP and Franklin but I don't think I'll ever watch another Anderson Silva card purely because I can't stand the guy. The responses I get from the Silva fans on here is 100% predictable, I've got hate mail and a long list of neg reps simply because not supporting Anderson must be some kind of satanic ritual. Think I need to take a break from this sport for a long while, can't stand the fans or their idol any more, it's too much arrogance to handle.
